TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

Authorities say a Tucson man is in custody in connection with the death of his female friend.

Pima County Sheriff's officials say 47-year-old Tyler Gunn has been booked into the county jail on suspicion of second-degree murder.

On Friday, deputies received a 911 call from a man who said came home to find his son at the house with a dead woman.

Gunn told investigators that he and 37-year-old Katherine Lemburg went to an area east of Tucson, where he participated in the woman's suicide.

Gunn then brought Lemburg's body back to his parent's house, where he placed her in a bedroom.

Investigators say they haven't confirmed Gunn's account.

It was unclear Monday if Gunn has a lawyer yet for his case.
